David Versus Monsanto (Full Version)

David Versus Monsanto (Full Version) | Jordan's MPA | Scoop.it

A farmer went to spray his organic field, around the telephone poles, when he noticed that the plants did not die.  Word got out, about this farmer's problem, and a multinational corporation paid him a visit.  What happened next, was that the farmer was sued for illegally using a patented product; the GM Round-Up ready seeds patented by Monsanto.  The farmer tried to sue back, claiming that he didn't even want the seeds on his property, and he has no control over how seeds come onto his property.  The farmer lost his lawsuit, and was ordered to burn 50 years, worth of seeds.

Why is the Gates foundation investing in GM giant Monsanto?

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's investments in Monsanto and Cargill have come under heavy criticism. Is it time for the foundation to come clean on its visions for agriculture in developing countries?

Bc Bill Gates wants to depopulate the world. Neo-fascism.

FLASHBACK - Scientist that Discovered GMO Health Hazards Immediately Fired, Team Dismantled | Jordan's MPA | Scoop.it
Though it barely received any media attention at the time, a renowned British biochemist who back in 1998 exposed the shocking truth about how genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) cause organ damage, reproductive failure, digestive dysfunction,...

Top ten ways humanity is being murdered in the name of 'evidence-based science' (#1 GMOs)

Top ten ways humanity is being murdered in the name of 'evidence-based science' (#1 GMOs) | Jordan's MPA | Scoop.it

(NaturalNews) Of all the threats to humanity today, none is more destructive than modern-day "evidence-based science." And by the word "science," I don't mean the humble pursuit of knowledge using genuine scientific methods. What I mean is the dogmatic, corporate-driven brand of distorted science based on falsified evidence, bribery of gatekeepers and corruption of government regulators.

DSM and Monsanto to commercialize soybean oil rich in omega-3 SDA. But will anti-GMO sentiment hinder its progress? - FoodNavigator (2013)

DSM and Monsanto to commercialize soybean oil rich in omega-3 SDA. But will anti-GMO sentiment hinder its progress? - FoodNavigator (2013) | Jordan's MPA | Scoop.it

Monsanto has joined forces with DSM to commercialize a genetically engineered soybean oil rich in the omega-3 fatty acid SDA (stearidonic acid) that can offer a more cost-effective means of adding omega-3s to foods without the flavor, stability and shelf-life issues associated with fish oil.

 

While there are other plant-based sources of omega-3s such as flaxseed, they contain ALA... which our bodies are not very good at converting into EPA and DHA... the omega-3s most associated with cardiovascular health.

 

By contrast, we are much more efficient at converting SDA into EPA, said Monsanto, which developed the SDA-rich beans by inserting genes from yeast and an (unidentified) plant, Federico Tripodi, Monsanto SDA program director, told FoodNavigator-USA... 

 

“SDA omega-3 soybean oil would provide a sustainable way for consumers to increase their intake of omega-3 fatty acids that help maintain heart health. Food companies are looking for solutions to deliver the benefits of longer chain omega-3s while maintaining flavor over the shelf-life of the product.” ...

 

DSM: GM technology potentially offers substantial benefits in the areas of health, nutrition and the environment.

 

But will the accelerating push for GMO labeling and the growing anti-GMO sentiment expressed by some influential retailers... cloud the future for the oil? Not if people focus on the benefits... “We believe there is a real need for vegetarian and sustainable sources of long chain omega-3s... the use of this technology can help in supporting human health and in making the world more sustainable...

 

Monsanto has also “completed the key regulatory processes in the US, Canada and Mexico and has also made submissions for import approval in key export markets” ...

Although it's a shame those opposing GMO's are blocking the progress of potentially lifechanging advances in incorporating new nutrients into common staples for people around the world. The soybean especially and the controversy over owning the genetics to the pesticide immune seed leads me to believe it is acceptable to be skeptical of these technologies.

My thoughts: It is crucial to find a manner of implicating these nutrients into the population, while still protecting the genetics of the natural soybeans. As these beans would require more nutrients in their soil, further research onto how farm the genetically altered beans should be done, and trials should be implicated in areas in poverty .
